That is pretty sweet had not seen it until this morning. Let me know how you do that. I run a few websites and would like to do something like that.

Yes, very cool TJ. Can favorites Icons be created in Photoshop?

Yes, just needs to be 16px x 16px.

(It is a nice favicon, TacoJohn.)

Where do you save them on the server? Are they just named favicon? GIF or JPG?

Why does it only show up when you click on threads? I have the General Forum bookmarked and for me it only shows up when I click on a thread.

You can save them as favicon.ico (which is the original way and the way that TacoJohn has done it) or as any image file (.png, .jpg, .gif) which should work in modern browsers.

You can see the code used here if you click View Source in your browser:

< LINK REL="SHORTCUT ICON" HREF="http://www.orangemane.com/BB/favicon.ico" >

I've added spaces in so that it works...

Does an icon have to be in the .ico format or can you use a .jpg, .gif, or .png?

EDIT: I see the answer above. Thanks alpine

It may be your cache. I see it on every page now...

:rofl: Yeah well I do have a pretty good inside source on this. You'll have to take my word that he is intimately connected with all the goings-ons concerning the Orange Mane. It's a pretty cool hook up, I'll admit.;D

I can't without divulging the identity of my source, which I will not do lest I compromise our arrangement. He could be in trouble if the rest of the staff finds out he's leaking information.

We still need an emoticon for something going over somebody's head. That could be used a lot around here. ;D
